A MAN who failed to attend unpaid work requirements has been fined hundreds of pounds by magistrates.

Ryan Weller, of Museum Street, Colchester, appeared in court at the start of the month where he was charged with failing to comply with community requirements on two occasions in September.

The 31-year-old, who admitted breaching his community order, appeared in Colchester Magistrates' Court on Wednesday, November 1, to receive punishment.

There, magistrates fined Weller – who failed to provide a reason for missing his unpaid work requirements – a total of £310.
